Design Updates + Inspirations


Recent Work: Alexandra Behr

As we get closer and closer to baby girls arrival, I’m trying to wrap up all active projects and one of these projects included a Logo + Branding project for Alexandra Behr Photography. Alexandra is a portrait photographer based in Peru. She specializes in newborn, family, children, and maternity. Alexandra views each of her projects as works of art, so she wanted her logo to reflect a piece of art as well. We chose to do hand lettering, something that is unique and detailed to her. We also created some watercolor patterns to use throughout her branding + print materials.


Recent Work: Lauren Wells Events

Here’s a peek at a recently wrapped up project for Lauren Wells Events! Lauren came to me wanting a website for her event design business, as well as a little brand update. We took her already established logo and spruced it up by changing the colors a bit and adding a couple arrows. From there I designed a site that reflected Lauren’s work with lots of special details. One being the various hand drawn elements throughout the site, Lauren loved this idea because it reflected her own work process.

Nursery: Prints

I’ve been on the lookout for beautiful prints that can add some bright pops of color & inspiration to our babe’s nursery. As mentioned before, I’m sticking with a primarily neutral palate for her room, but I want to bring in some pops of pink to add a touch of feminine and a bit of boho with some artwork and accessories. Here are a few of my favorites — but I really can’t stop going back to Sharon Montrose’s ‘Flamingo No. 1’ Print and Britt Brass’ ‘Warm Geos’ Print! I may need to paint a few patterns for her as well!

Recent Work: Kayla Adams

Late this summer, I wrapped up a re-brand for the uber talented, Kayla Adams. Kayla took photos of my office for my new site, so we traded services, after she asked for help re-designing her logo. Sometimes it’s really hard to design for yourself, but sometimes I’m hesitant designing for other designers. Knowing Kayla personally, and her work, really helped. I was able to take her style and work with her in mind the entire time. She’s also in the process of updating her site to match her new brand and I can’t wait to see it live!

Baby Girl!

Last week we found out our little babe is a girl! We’re so excited! It really makes things feel more real. Before we even knew what we where having, I had already started planning ideas for the nursery. Like I mentioned before, I’ll be splitting the office with the nursery (like so many of you said you do too!). I wanted the room to flow and match, even if it serves two purposes. So, without knowing the gender, I started thinking about pieces that would work well for us. I really wanted to pick items that would work in other areas of our home (if she outgrows them) or that would work with future babies, regardless of their sex.

I love a mix a of white/wood/gold/bronze, as you can see in this little style guide. I knew that would be the base for the room. From there, I want to find more gold + pink accents, making the room more feminine. We’re also still debating the whole rocker vs glider thing, I just love the design of this rocker! Moms, what’s your preference?
